  • Teams with 10 or more players may request a Team Room.  Small teams are welcomed to "combine" for the purposes of a Team Room Request.

  • To request a Room click the button below.  Note, this does not "reserve" you a room ... it is a request.  The number of rooms offered to us by the School will determine whose requests we can fulfill.

  • We will allocate Team Rooms based on a combination of Team Size and the Date/Time of your request.  Once we assign specific rooms to teams, we will ask a responsible adult to sign a "Team Room Agreement."  We will email the Agreement form to Room POCs once we determine the final room allocation.

  • Requesting a room requires you to make a $75 Deposit. 

    • We use $50 of your deposit to purchase a gift-certificate to The Teacher Supply Store or Office Max for the teacher whose room you use.

    • If your room is returned in a clean manner, and the Teacher does not notify us of any post-event problems, then we return you $25 of your Team Room Deposit.

    • We expect to get 15-20 rooms from the school, but those numbers are based on past experience and not on an agreement with the school.

    • NOTE:  If the size of your team necessitates MORE THAN ONE ROOM, then you will be charged an additional $75 per room, which we will collect from the Team Room POC at the tournament site.

  • Team Rooms Requests received so far ... as of 4PM on Saturday, 1/6/2018
